The Time to Get Your Estate Plan in Order Is NOW And We're Open and Here to Help

Well, I’m not going to sugarcoat it. This virus, this quarantine, and this entire season of uncertainty is serious. It’s affecting everybody in one way or another, and every day we’re learning new ways that this is challenging for us and hard on our clients. That’s not to say the whole situation is hopeless — I just don’t want to pretend like everything is all right. However, despite all the craziness in the world right now, we want you to know that Phillips & Blow’s doors are still open. As I mentioned in our last newsletter, it is more important now than ever to make sure your estate plan is in order. While you should be doing absolutely everything you can to prevent the worst from happening, the last thing you should want is to be caught unprepared if the worst does happen to you or one of your family members. For us to close down the office now could be catastrophic for any members of our community who need to get their basic legal documents in order. That’s why we’re doing everything we can to make our office a safe place for our clients. We’re currently limiting the number of clients allowed at one time in our office to one. We’re also doing all consultations over the phone ahead of time so when you absolutely have to visit the office to pick up documents or other things, you won’t have to be here very long. We can also do meetings over Zoom if you would prefer that method. On top of these precautions, we’re also wiping down every surface and doorknob frequently.

notarization. While this new law is helpful in theory, I will say we haven’t figured out how to apply the law in a way that works well for our clients. Nevertheless, Justin and I are working to figure out how we can make remote notarization possible for our clients, and we will keep all of you updated if the law changes.

thanking them for all they do. I myself have a relative who is a doctor in Philadelphia and a niece here in Denver who works as an EMT. I’m grateful they’re doing their part to mitigate the effects of the coronavirus. Along with the first line responders, Justin and I also want to give a shoutout to all the teachers for all the work they do. Both my wife and Justin’s wife are teachers, so we know firsthand how hard they work to educate the future generations of this country. That said, I think a lot of parents out there right now are homeschooling their kids and realizing just how challenging a teacher’s job can be. If you have a family member or a friend who is a teacher, take some time to thank them for everything they do when you get a chance. To finish up, I just want to say that I hope you’re all staying safe and healthy, and that if you have any questions or concerns about your estate plan, please don’t hesitate to call us. We’re here if you need us.

Finally, from all of us at Phillips & Blow, we just want to extend our heartfelt gratitude to all the first line responders risking their own health to slow the spread of this pandemic. We know that many of our clients have family who work in the medical profession in some way, so please keep THE LAST THING YOU SHOULD WANT IS TO BE CAUGHT UNPREPARED IF THE WORST DOES HAPPEN TO YOU OR ONE OF YOUR FAMILY MEMBERS.” “WHILE YOU SHOULD BE DOING ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING YOU CAN TO PREVENT THE WORST FROM HAPPENING,
